This is another quickie afternoon project to do with the kids (inspired by this bird hanging), using things you probably already have lying around your house. I had a box of little vintage birdies, but you can get some cute ones at your local craft store. I didn't give out exact measurements because it will differ depending on the size of your stick and how big you want your arch. Also, I used gorilla glue to attach my bird, but the birds also had some wires on the bottom that we just wrapped around the stick. I think the a hot glue gun would work just as well, maybe even better. It's just I found the cord of mine cut right when I was gathering materials (it was one of the girls, but no one has fessed up). 

This is perfect for a little reading corner, hanging over a bed, or in a baby nursery. Don't all the birdies look so sweet hanging out together?! We haven't decided where to hang these up just yet, but no matter where they go, they will definitely look sweet.
